With Robert Muggah

We can give people a better sense of what’s happening around them at a time of extreme confusion and a motivation to act. Because ultimately, the future is what we make it, says ‘Terra Incognita’ co-author Dr Robert Muggah. Professor Ian Goldwin added, “We are heading for a very dangerous and less prosperous world but if we learn our lessons, we can do much better as individuals, as a global community to gain signposts on what to do and how to do it, to create a better world.”
